    I don't believe Mitt Romney ever explained how he was going to address the issue.

    If Obama has been working with Governor Huntsman over part of the past 4-years with China, this issue was discussed most likely, many times, by this administration. They haven't done anything except talk, either.

    It needs to be addressed and commitments made by both parties. China can't live with the United States of America and a lot of people in the United States of America can't live without China. Wal-Mart and most businesses still have a lot of their items come from China. China has reproduced, one way or another, a lot of our items we use and even have developed. Some durable goods are even imitated there and come to the United States of America as if they were produced here. Non-durable and durable goods are what helped the United States of America become a strong industrialized nation.

    Due to workplace and environmental laws and executive orders, some of our companies did move to other nations, including China. However, the United Nations rules kicking in and some UN leaders want to enforce rules with those nations.

    He won't actually go through with it, that was just for the quit giving into China voters.

    In other words --

    Mitt Romney will ruin America's already fragile economy.
